If you play last Wednesday, what match you think was the best for your opinion? Feel FREE to comment we belong to table tennis world!
Ken surprise Minh with his lobbing game and backhand smash. Minh a fast player was not expecting the ball coming back after smashing 2 times in the road the ball, but Ken return more of 2 times the ball, and sometimes finishing with a smack backhand from far.
Ken won the match 3-2.
Tim Stephens versus Alex Figueroa
Tim beat everybody taking the first position on his group. “Great work Tim!”
This game Tim found some problems on his reception, Alex take advantage of his table tennis serve skills to win some points.
Alex won the match 3-0.
Umpire: Luis Borges
This final was very challenge for both of them, because Ken already play with Alex on the groups. So Ken knew already how Alex play.
The Equal Challenge Tournament you never know who is going to win, can you predict?
You cannot relax in a final, even if you are wining 10-1. I think this time Ken discover why.
Sadly Ken loose one set with a score of 10-1, Alex little by little earn his points until the 10-10, at the end of the set won Alex 12-10. Ken Okey did not believe this, we are sure he was wondering “How this happen?”
Alex take advantage of that set and he boost his game ending with a score of 3-1.
Alex Figueroa is the Last Wednesday Champion of the Equal Challenge Tournament
